Can others edit my Photos

Hey folks... I use a visible copyright stamp on my client photos and I have been kicking around the idea of a signature as opposed to a generic stamp. Here are both versions. What do you all think?

Date/Name Only:
$Date Copyright.jpg

Full Signature w/date and name:
$Full Signature Copyright.jpg

I'm going to do one or the other and I'm thinking for art pieces... the full signature but I don't know that I'd use it on a portrait for a client.

Throwing it out there.
I like the second (full sig) more. Can't really say why, I just
I've thought about doing a sig, but I'm too paranoid about having my actual signature out here in the Wild Wild Web. Maybe it is time to develop an Art sig..

Well... number 2 it is!

Thanks for the input.
I like to add something to my delivered prints like this:

(the above centered)

Then personally sign the print at delivery.
